COCONUT MATCHA BITES

A journey of healthy eating is a lifestyle change and I try to do that 80% of the time coupled with a weakness for most things crunchy. 

I catch myself finishing about 250g of nuts on a daily basis hence I decided to curb the quantity by incorporating them into a healthy recipe .

The inclusion of Matcha powder to the recipe not only lends its distinctive green colour but healthy benefits of Vitamins A & C, great antioxidant properties, natural detoxifier, increases ones metabolic rate (which aids weightloss), lowers cholesterol to mention but a few. 


Please don't consume more than 2 balls a day for a healthier lifestyle. Enjoy the recipe and please leave a comment about your experience. 
You can get Matcha at most health shops or online.
